One-Take Music Video

Have you seen this? 172 students at a university in Montreal put it together in a little more than 2 hours. I love it!

Rockin' at the Hotel Cafe

In long-distance celebration of my brother's birthday (Well, mainly out of coincidence, but Happy Birthday, Ethan!), we went to the Hotel Cafe for a great [sold out!] concert.

Sara Bareilles was the headliner, and her voice - especially live - is A-MAZING. Wide range with perfect tone and pitch. And she has personality to boot! I was especially excited to see that Tony Lucca was one of the opening performers (as my previous post would support), and it was a treat when Sara and Tony sang together at the end.

I highly recommend seeing either artist in concert - their passions in playing and singing are best heard in person. :)

We were actually closer to the stage in the tiny venue than my blurry phone pictures would depict...

Lighten up

This short article struck me as "right on"... I know I overreact to things that ultimately don't matter. I especially like this part of the piece:

...your spouse does something objectionable. And you get angry. You say, "I can't believe you did that." Here's the thing: The angry part is always about you. It doesn't matter how in the right you think you are, how in the right you may actually be. The fact that it bothers you so much — that's your problem. I can't tell you how much I wish it were otherwise, but it's true.

So... awkward...

The more I see of his weird behavior, the more I believe that it's all a hoax.

Strong Apes = Dumped by Entertainment Industry

Remember these posts? If further proof of why apes shouldn't be used in advertising is needed, here is what became of one of the CareerBuilder chimps...

(Thanks, Ida, for passing along the article.)

Living in L.A. means...

...I spent 2 1/2 hours in traffic during a drive yesterday that should've taken 20 minutes.

...when Leah and I took a walk at a local park, a film crew was set up along the sidewalk and middle grassy area shooting a commercial. (Look for guys playing football outside when you next see a Coors commercial.)

...$22 at a locally-run produce/deli shop can buy fresh white onions, two kinds of lettuce, apples, oranges, Italian parsley, grapefruit, tomatoes, mushrooms, blueberries, green onions, avocado, carrots, two kinds of potatoes, a jar of roasted red peppers, a bag of sliced almonds, and chocolate-covered pretzels (the last one isn't healthy, I know)!

...Jon and I will be seatfillers for the third year in a row at the SAG (Screen Actors' Guild) Awards show in a week (Sunday, January 25th).
